Ensuring healthy dental habits start early is one of the most important things that you can do for your child’s overall health. Let us help you get these routine dental habits started, to maintain healthy teeth and gums so your child retains their oral health for life.
At CoastWide Smiles Dentalcare our very friendly, highly skilled and experienced dentists and oral health therapists understand children's dental care and will make your child's visit to us a fun and positive experience. We are know that prevention is always better than cure and so we actively encourage children to have a great oral health regime and help them achieve this in any way we can.
Good dental health routines should begin in infancy and continue throughout their adult life. Our dentists and hygienists are highly trained to look after children and young adults (0-18 years old) in a relaxed, fun environment and take the time and explain to them the importance of caring for their teeth, making your child smile with confidence.
CoastWide Smiles Dentalcare offers a full range of treatments for children and are very happy to answer any questions that you as a parent may have and explain in detail any procedure which may be required for your child.
At their first visit with us your child will receive a comprehensive examination and x rays, if these are needed, to assess your childs developing teeth and which will give us an overall picture to clearly assess all areas of the mouth. A thorough scale and clean will be given and flouride treatment may also be advised at that visit. Any treatment that is required will be fully explained and a plan given showing exactly what the cost will be and all of our children fees will have a discount applied to make this more affordable. After the initial visit with us, we recommend that all children attend our regular preventive dental care program to care for and maintain their teeth and oral health and as often as advised by our therapists, this is usually every six months. The Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme provides $1000 of free preventive dental to all eligible children, which is bulk billed, and our friendly team can check for you to see if your child is eligible for this.
We do offer an extensive range of paediatric dental services, with our therapists experienced in behaviour management techniques as well. Treatments available for children vary from comprehensive examinations, fissure sealants, restorations (white fillings), extraction of deciduous teeth, pulpotomy (nerve treatment), stainless-steel crowns (dental caps) on deciduous teeth and orthodontic advice is offered to all children.
